SNOWMOBILE TRAILS IN EAGLE RIVER
& ALL OF VILAS COUNTY ARE NOT OPEN.
All clubs in Vilas County, including the Eagle River Sno-Eagles are busy working on the trails. Yesterday saw volunteers out signing & still clearing branches & trees from trail sections. Most trails in Eagle River were panned this past week. Swamps are still wet & mushy. Also out packing to help a freeze up.
This morning the temps are already 32 degrees & there is a good chance of light snow around dinner time today & earlier tomorrow morning. Forecast for a total of 3 inches +/- of snow to the 19 already on the ground. Then the temps are dropping like a rock. Highs in single digits Tuesday through Thursday. Then more SNOW. Right now there is around a foot on the trails.
Trail inspections began at the beginning on Monday. It takes 10-11 days to get all of the 11 clubs trails inspected. This all goes on while we wait for the 10 muzzleloader season & 4 day antlerless deer seasons to end on December 15. So no opening until sometime after the deer hunts end.
Be Patient. Won’t be long now! See ya on the trails sometime in mid-December.
GO PACK GO!
